We went to Ski Ward for the very first time Presidents Day 2014 to go tubing. The kids had a blast as did I. The staff are pleasant and very good at their jobs. They made sure everyone stayed safe in the tubing lanes. The tubing itself is great fun. They have a tie rope that will take you up (you can also walk up if you're impatient) and the wait at the top was not bad. The lanes themselves are fast and smooth with no jarring bumps. Highly recommend for young and old. My only con is that I found it a little pricy.
